Crowdsourcing Seminar


Lecture Wed. 13:30 - 15:00 Z613


Fri.13:30 - 15:00Z613

Course works and credits

Credit will be given based on a presentation of a research topic of choice, as well as the setup and analysis of an experimental study using crowdsourcing. The presentation should include the theoretical foundations, the design of the experiment, and the data analysis of the results. In addition a written report containing this material must be provided.

The participation in the practical is necessary to proceed with the experimental study. It serves as a hands-on session and is partly used to help with problems that have been encountered and discuss challenges and how to solve them.

None, if taken as a master course. If taken as an advanced course in the bachelor program:

  • basic math courses offered in our bachelor programs
  • algorithms and data structures
  • introduction to computer science including programming

The data analysis of the results of the practical part will be explained using toolsets written in MATLAB. If you wish to use a different programming language, be aware of the fact that little help in bug-fixing can be provided.
